1961 CORVAIR RAMPSIDE, UNIQUE COMPACT PICKUP TRUCK
1961 WAS THE 2ND YEAR FOR CORVAIR A REVOLUTIONARY REAR ENGINED COMPACT PRODUCED BY CHEVY IN RESPONSE TO CHRYLSER'S PLYMOUTH VALIENT AND FORD'S FALCON. CORVAIR BROUGHT OUT A LINE OF COMPACT TRUCKS TO ADD TO THE LINE AND A STATION WAGON CALLED THE LAKEWOOD. THERE WERE 3 TRUCK PRODUCTS: PICKUP, VAN WITH WINDOWS OR PANEL, ( WHICH CAN BE CONSIDERED THE FIRST MINI VAN ), AND THE RAMPSIDE. THE UNIQUE THING ABOUT THE RAMPSIDE WAS AS THE NAME IMPLIES, A RAMP ON THE SIDE SO CARGO COULD BE WHEELED UP THE RAMP INTO THE CARGO BAY. THE ENGINE FOR THE RAMPSIDE WAS STILL RATED AT 80BHP. TRANSMISSIONS WERE EITHER A MANUAL OR AN OPTIONAL AUTOMATIC. THE STEERING WHEEL WAS MOUNTED OVER THE FRONT WHEELS LIKE THE VOLKSWAGEN VAN. THIS EXAMPLE HERE IS RESTORED ALTHOUGH SLIGHTLY MODIFIED WITH THE STEERING WHEEL, SOME DASH GAUGES, THE WHEELS, AND THE PAINT IS NOT FACTORY. THE INTEGRITY OF THIS RARE CORVAIR STILL EXIST AND THIS A GREAT RESTORATION. Another rare vehicle brought to you by 55lincoln. THANKS VERY MUCH FOR VIEWING.
